If Dan Henderson had been hoping to still get a crack at the UFC Light Heavyweight title after a knee injury forced him out of UFC 151 by taking shots at Jon Jones for not accepting a fight with Chael Sonnen, it may have worked.
Jones, who is scheduled to now face Vitor Belfort at UFC 152, blasted Henderson this week while speaking to The Toronto Sun
"I haven't said that anywhere, but you can be the first to put that out," Jones said over the phone. "There's some unfinished business, for sure. I don't think Henderson handled the situation wisely, by making fun of me for not taking the fight (against Sonnen). Dude, you just dodged a bullet and you're talking trash to me? You got injured and you're going to talk trash that I didn't fight Chael?
"He came out with this ad that said, â€˜Buy a Hendo shirt and get a free Jon Jones shirt to dry your car off with.' You're making fun of me, yet you got hurt and dodged a bullet? You're sitting at home with ice on your knee and I'm here doing pushups again because I thought my camp should have been over. I have stuff to do and you're sitting around your home playing video games, or whatever you do during the day.
"You should shut up and be grateful you dodged a bullet."
